Less 365 - Week 2

This week the photograph below only accounts for a very small amount of items that I have delcuttered, donated, thrown away or recycled. My oldest son was away for the weekend - for the Pedal Prix - so I took advantage of it and reorganised and cleaned his room thoroughly. He was not impressed, but I managed to recycle, throw out, and donate about 3 1/2 garbage bags full...let's see how much he notices is gone, seeing as he knew "exactly where his stuff was".

This week my photo above is of 5 scarves that I did not wear even once this winter, and two handbags I haven't used for at least 3 years...possibly more like 5. Off they go to the Salvos!

New Designs

My goodness, I am so behind with updating my new designs...these are a selection from the past month or so (please click on the images if you want more information about these :) )

I've noticed I've used lots of yellow in these designs...maybe because it's decidedly Spring here?

H.R. Giger

Famous for his work on Ridley Scott's Alien, H.R. Giger's disturbing work blends monsters, mechanisms, and erotica together in nightmarish scenes.

Less 365 - Week 1

Inspired by Sara's recent blog post (from girlscantell) - I've decided to take part in the Less 365 experiment. The premise is to give away, recycle, or bin an item a day, for an entire year! I'm going to photograph my items once a week, and hopefully this will keep me being more mindful of what comes into my home...hopefully...

This week (apart from an embarrassingly large bag of rubbish found in the bottom of a long forgotten drawer) I'm donating a size 18 Grecian style dress I wore to Leon's Christmas do last year - gorgeous, but way too big now (yay!) a weird iPod-y type attachment that I've never used, a table runner I bought possibly 15-odd years ago from Oxfam, and have never used, a Big Audio Dynamite CD (don't ask!) a teensy tiny camel pin (I have no idea where I got this from?), and I am recycling a box I have kept for at least 8 years that my jewellery block came in, and old business cards with incorrect details.


So clever!

The Wild Unknown

Ah! It's definitely Spring here today! The sun is shining, and after the generous amount of wintry weather we've experienced recently, the sunshine is certainly very welcome. These wonderful Spring prints from the Wild Unknown (now sold out) are very sweet reminders of Spring all year around.

I'm completely addicted to looking at house-y type sites at the moment! Have a look at this gorgeous Victorian design situated in San Fransisco. I love that many of the original features were retained, yet the design is crisp and modern - a very liveable space indeed!
